Trusting God When Things Get Off Course

In a blink of an eye, life can change. That’s what happened to my husband and I this past week.

It started early Wednesday morning when the rain came, and temperatures plummeted. When we woke up that morning, ice covered all the trees. A few hours later the electricity went out and so did the water.

Sometimes life can get off course. This last week, in my part of Texas, life got off course.

As the weight of the ice became too much to bear, tree limbs snapped causing the power to go out in many different areas. Soon, cell service was gone as well, and we were without a means to communicate with the outside world.

Still God provided. My husband and I drove to our church’s fellowship hall which is close to where we live. We were able to warm up and make lunch. Then the power went out at the church. . .but God provided.

Our pastor let us use his generator, so we were able to run our space heater to stay warm through the night. The following morning, we planned to return to the church to make lunch, but there was a huge tree blocking the road. But God was still there with us. Thanks to a neighbor who had his power restored and let us stay at one of his houses, we were able to stay warm and fix meals.

Though the power is still off as of Saturday when I am writing this post, I have no doubt, God will continue to provide no matter how many times life gets off course.

Philippians 4:19 says, But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.     

Yes, He is!

Many blessings,

Mary Alford
